Elizabeth Gould, Ph.D.


Dorman T. Warren Professor of Psychology and the
Neuroscience Institute
Princeton University

For the past two decades, Dr. Gould has studied adult neurogenesis and other forms of structural plasticity in the early postnatal and adult mammalian brain. Her work focuses on the regulation of new neurons by experience, including stress, physical activity and parenting, findings that have implications for normal brain function and brain repair. Her lab explores issues related to the regulation of cell production and the survival of brain regions of the hippocampus, olfactory bulb and neocortex in rodents and primates (marmosets and macaques).

She received her Ph.D. in behavioral neuroscience from the University of California, Los Angeles, and did her postdoctoral training at the Rockefeller University. Before joining Princeton, Dr. Gould was an Assistant Professor at Rockefeller University.
